Today I bring to you all a collection of 69 super simple, effortless, exotic and delicious Diwali sweet recipes.
I will be sharing a collection of snack, bread, curry recipes that can be prepared during this Diwali celebration and other similar festive occasions.
A little intro about Diwali or Deepavali for those who are not aware with this Indian festival:
Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights. It is particularly associated with Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, and marks the beginning of the financial year in India. This festival also signifies the victory of light over darkness. Diwali is one of the most popular, biggest and brightest Indian festivals, and this is the vacation time too. It’s the time when all the family and friends gather, exchange gifts and sweets.
Diwali is just around the corner. So the festivities have finally started. And that festive spirit also made me think about possible diwali recipes. I will be making this year to celebrate this festival. And then I realized everyone must be struggling with the same issue, so why not share some of my favorite recipes with you all. So that you can keep aside all the thinking process and start preparing or planning some of these awesome sweets recipes without any further delay.
We all know that food plays an important role in the celebrations. And no celebration is complete without a touch of sweet dishes. I must say desserts are the highlight of every festival — they are the most popular and essential dishes of Diwali too. They add much more enthusiasm to any festive spirit. There is nothing quite like an pleasant dinner table loaded with a variety of Diwali sweets.
So I decided to assemble some of my treasured Diwali sweet (mithai) recipes. This Diwali, light up your homes with these delicious Indian sweets recipes. Some of these sweet recipes are vegan and other vegetarian recipes can be easily modified into vegan by substituting with cashew milk, soy milk or almond milk. These mouthwatering and flavorful recipes are easy to cook and toothsome.
Now you can simply forget about the elaborate presentation and fancy ingredients because here are super-easy solutions to that. These will sparkle your sweet-tooth with a satisfaction of joy.
Some of these can be prepared ahead of time and others are almost fuss-free, so they can be made 1-2 days prior to the festival.
